Biography:

Oliver Chamberlain was for ten years Executive Director of the Center for the Arts at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He brought both visual arts exhibits and performances in music, dance and theatre to area acclaim. Previously, for fifteen years, he was a professor of music history and for a decade chaired that area in the Department of Composition and History in the College of Musical Arts at Bowling Green (OH) State University. His other principal interest, in horticulture and landscape design, began as a child on the Lessing J. Rosenwald estate in Jenkintown, PA, where his father was estate gardener.

Landscapes and Writings of Harold Caparn
Harold Caparn (1864-1945) has not been known because his archive was privately held and not open to research. It was made available to the author in 2005. It contains photos of his landscape work and plans, some of his letters and his client list. From it the author has selected for this publication some of Caparn’s 175 landscape works, his 120 published articles and 70 letters to The New York Times. His designs for outstanding gardens and estates are described and pictured. His letters, articles and personal battles for New York’s Central Park, against smoke pollution and the mismanagement of natural resources are told in convincing detail. His contribution of lasting essays on botanic gardens and the founding of the American Society of Landscape Architects are now valued historic references. read more
